Philips teams up with Validic to integrate personal health data from third-party devices and apps into connected health services
Royal Philips today announced it is further enabling connected health by signing an agreement with Validic, a U.S.-based fast-growing company that pioneers a technology platform for connectivity and access to digital health data from clinical and remote-monitoring devices, sensors, fitness equipment, wearables and patient wellness applications.
The collaboration with Validic – whose platform reaches approximately 223 million people in 47 countries – will offer Philips opportunities to expand the breadth and depth of its connected health solutions such as its Personal Health Programs, Lifeline medical alert services and eCareCoordinator and eCareCompanion eHealth applications with third-party device data. These connected health solutions and services have been designed to facilitate coordinated care across the health continuum from healthy living and prevention to diagnosis, treatment and home care. They have been built on Philips' HealthSuite digital platform, an open cloud-based platform of services, capabilities and tools that allows for the creation of the next generation of connected health and wellness innovations.
